Abstract (en)

This device for elastically locking constituent parts of compasses has the characteristic of offering two fixed seats (3A,3B) rigid with the compass structure (1), for housing an elongate body (9) to be retained, they being spaced apart by a movable intermediate seat (5) substantially aligned with said fixed seats, the movable seat being present in a member of transverse axis which axially receives a thrust from elastic means (11) for creating a central transverse force on the elongate body to give rise to lateral reactions which produce a gripping effect, said elastic means being able to be subjected to a thrust in the opposite direction by a manual command, in order to nullify the gripping effect, as required for inserting or extractingly removing the elongate body. <IMAGE>
